It's tough to beat a big plate of chicken wings. Crispy, juicy and saucy, wings are great for football and just about any other mealtime. One of the great things about chicken wings is that you can get them in 100's of different flavors. From sweet-n-sticky to flaming hot, there are so many different ways they can be seasoned. Some people like their wings "wet" (fried, then doused in the sauce of their choice) while others prefer them "dry" (seasoned and fried). Many Montanans seem to prefer ranch dressing as their first choice of wing dip and blue cheese a likely a close second.

The National Chicken Council said Americans consumed 1.4 BILLION chicken wings during Super Bowl LIV. WYRK in Buffalo, NY (the birthplace of buffalo wings) claims that we'll consume 18,000 wings per-person in a lifetime. That number seems a little high to me. I guess I'll need to step up my game to help achieve those figures. Wing lovers will often debate which is better: the actual little wingtips (my favorite) or the drummies.
